Summer Story

Summer Story

Greedy mouths, menacing many-eyed women’s faces that want to be fed with guns: war descended upon a girl’s childhood like a bombshell. It’s summer but nothing will stay the way it was. Except perhaps for the cow and a few nocturnal dreams that connect her with her suddenly dead parents. But the cow is slaughtered and toiling for foreign powers continues like a danse macabre. A surreal photo collage with atonal-expressionist music.
